One thing that's extremely apparent here in the meta, probably missing that term- forgive me, is that chopping is a central part of the game. Personally, that's always very uncomfortable for me- I hate seeing the trees and resources being torn from the map, and I often refuse to do so (surely to the detriment of my civ). Apparently, my subconscious has the environmentalist agenda (Teddy and I tend to be friends). It seems clear that Firaxis designed this game in such a way that chopping not only often is, but generally should be a core aspect of your civilization's development and productivity (which, I think, mimics real life to an unfortunate extent). But what happens when you resist? My question for all of you is how would your game play change if the only times you removed a feature was automatically for district, city, or wonder placement? How would you handle production? Would your wonder priorities and build priorities see a major shift? Would governors be used differently?
